01 - Intro (Feat. DMX) (Prod. by Ervin "EP" Pope) 0/5
Corny as hell. There is no rapper who takes himself as seriously as The Game (well, Kanye or Lil wayne maybe) so it doesn't come as a surprise. Worthless intro.

02 - Lax Files (Prod. by J. R. Rotem) 4/5
Bangin' beat and the usual Game lyrics. This is why I like his albums. For the most parts he chooses the right beats and I really dig his voice and flow. nevermind that his lyrics aren't all that.

03 - State of Emergency (Feat. Ice Cube) (Prod. by J. R. Rotem) 4/5
Another bangin' beat. Too bad Cube is only on the hook.

04 - Bulletproof Diaries (Feat. Raekwon) (Prod. by Jelly Roll) 5/5
I was sceptic to have Rae on a beat by Jelly Roll but this shit is off the hook.
Rae kills it and this makes me look forward to Cuban Linx II even more.

05 - My Life (Feat. Lil Wayne) (Prod. by Cool & Dre) 4/5
Thang God Weezy is only on the hook. don't know why he feels a need to be the next Roger Troutman but it's better than his normal fucked up voice and weak lyrics

06 - Money (Prod. by Cool & Dre) 4/5
Liking the beat, Cool & Dre did a real good job on this album

07 - Cali Sunshine (Feat. Bilal) (Prod. by Nottz) 3,5/5
Good beat. The hook is a bit lame but overall an okay tune

08 - Ya Heard (Feat. Ludacris) (Prod. by Nottz) 3,5/5
Luda kills this one.

09 - Hard Liquor (Interlude) (Prod. by Ervin "EP" Pope)
Pointless. What is the beat playing in the background?

10 - House of Pain (Prod. by DJ Toomp) 5/5
Love this beat.

11 - Gentleman's Affair (Feat. Ne-Yo) (Prod. by J. R. Rotem) 1/5
Not feeling this at all

12 - Let Us Live (Feat. Chrisette Michelle) (Prod. by Scott Storch) 4/5
Another great Game/Storch collabo.

13 - Touchdown (Feat. Raheem Devaughn) (Prod. by 1500 or Nothin') 2/5
I could've done without this track as well

14 - Angel (Feat. Common) (Prod. by Kanye West) 4,5/5
The idea of a Common/Game collabo sounds weird but works remarkably well. The beat is crazy too.

15 - Never Can Say Goodbye (Feat. Latoya Williams) (Prod. by Ervin "EP" Pope) 3,5/5
Some will hate this concept and continue the "Game is a dickrider" talk but I think he pulls it off. Not feeling the hook.

16 - Dope Boys (Feat. Travis Barker) (Prod. by 1500 or Nothin') 4/5

17 - Game's Pain (Feat. Keyshia Cole) (Prod. by Knobody & Dahoud Darien) 3,5/5
The beat is okay but the hook is lame

18 - Letter to the King (Feat. Nas) (Prod. by Hi-Tek) 4/5
Great track and great beat but after an album full of gangster rhymes it seems a bit weird paying homage to MLK. Still, it's a good track and Hi-Tek cooked up a banger for them.

19 - Outro (Feat. DMX) 0/5
Like the intro, completely worthless

Overall : 3,75 / 5

Not quite as good as his other two albums but still a good album.
Take away the intro/outro, the skits and loose trk 11 & 13 and you have a great album.

i'm sure there is, i just never really looked for it...........as for this album, it's a step back from Doctor's Advocate and the beats aren't as good as The Documentary.......Morten will hate to hear this but i liked it in the same way that i liked The Carter III

i really hope this is his last album, i listened to this a couple times, he never really talks about much of anything, it's just all a ramble that usually contains the name of a popular rapper, name brand liquor, name brand shoe and some kind of gun reference

i can live with his lyrics since the beats are so damn dope

he might not be the best rapper alive but he knows how to pick beats and write hooks (kinda like 50 in his prime)

he's good at hiring other people to do his hooks , but i will admit he's ten times better at writing them since The Documentary

That's true. When I first saw the lineup I was thinking he went overboard with the features but thankfully most of them were for the hooks.

Still, it's a great album

to me, Doctor's Advocate will always be his best album, because i wasn't expecting as much...........LAX & The Documentary were so hyped, they could have never lived up to it............Game would impress me a lot more if he dropped the fake thug BS and spoke on real shit, i'm tired of hearing about his rims, his unnatural love for Dre, how he "destroyed" G-Unit, hoes he fingerbanged, so on and so forth

Agreed.

His potential is so much bigger than what his albums show

and yes, Doctors Advocate is his best

As usual Game got some bangin beats, but as always I just can't take him sertiously as a rapper. He's not wack or anything, just really boring.

this album was alright, definitely has a handful of good songs.

but for game's third album, i guess i was expecting a little more from him. for sure theres some dope beats on the cd though, i guess it's good enough to add to your collection.

3.5/5
